Did you know… Unrestricted access to scientific research cuts two ways for those outside research’s traditional strongholds in the U.S. and Western Europe. Open access does not only bring research to areas like the global south. Open access also brings the great work being done in places like Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and elsewhere in Latin America to an international audience, too.
Regionally, research output in disciplines like Business and Economics, Psychiatry and Psychology, Microbiology, and Computer Science are growing at double-digit rates.
To demonstrate this, we at SpringerOpen wanted to take some time to highlight some of the journals that have published a significant amount of research from South America, all across all of our disciplines. They include Nanoscale Research Letters, the International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education, AMB Express, the Journal of Cheminformatics, and Advances in Difference Equations.
Regionally, research output in disciplines like Business and Economics, Psychiatry and Psychology, Microbiology, and Computer Science are growing at double-digit rates, year-on-year. As you can see from this chart, Article output in Business and Economics, for example, is growing at 24%; and Computer Science at 15%.
Not only that, but we partner with societies in Latin America to help bring their research to the wider world. These include Applied Adhesion Science, published with the Brazilian Society of Adhesion and Adhesives, the Brazilian Journal of Science and Technology, and the Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society.
And you’ll find more details about how SpringerOpen helps Latin American authors publish their research open access here.
